Night Vision

Hi all,

Following a visit to watch badgers in a local location I have been viewing online with the prospect of purchasing some 'night vision' equipment. 

Anyone out there any recommendations on any particular item to use & approx price?



And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make!

  • Hi Jim,

    I amno expert in this field but having a browse in the net it seems that  ATN, Yukon and Bushnell do some reasonably priced kit from about 100 to 300 quid.

    I know Bushnell also sell infrared camera traps that are very popular with wildlife photographers that can also produce video footage.

    I have thought about buying a set myself especially for bat walks.

    Good luck in your search

    Hiya JIm, again not a bit of kit I use, but with optics in general you get what you pay for.

    Would spend some time, reading review's and if possible test them first (hard I know as shops aren't open overnight, but maybe they have a dark storage area etc)


    If you can find some by a manufacturer, whose lenses you already use that would be a bonus as you will have an idea of the quality.


    Good luck :)

    It's both what you do and the way that you do it!
